obama and his former jobs council, by 2012 -- excuse me, 2020, there is persistent demand of jobs in the health care sector alone. there are not enough applicants to fill the jobs in the booming natural gas industry. suppose colleges provided prospective students with reliable information on the potential earnings. what if parents had access to the clear and understandable breakdown to academic studies and amenities. students would have a better chance of graduating within four years and getting a job. helping students realize opportunity and a career while keeping tuition costs makes common sense the senators have a plan that addresses this goal. i am working with the chairman and pursuing legislative action in the house. in the courts of this congress, we would like to work to reform our student aid process to give students a financial aid option to finish studies sooner. including for-profit schools. and it will make the cost more transparent to parents and students in the millions of taxpayers who helped pay some of the bills. we owed to them. a good education leads to more in

that we are engaged in the 21st century. honestly i would like to join president obama and commending our troops and condemning north korean nuclear test. we are still trying to figure out whether or not it was a nuclear test. this was a clear violation of north korea's own commitments under the six party talks. it is undermining regional security. the actions are increasing the risk of proliferation. further isolating north korea from the international community. there is no question that north korea constitutes regional stability that is lacking. combination of a regional missile test that combines with this nuclear test, we believe it represents a real threat to the united states of america. make no mistake, the u.s. military will take over necessary steps to meet the commitments of the republic of korea and our regional allies. i was pleased yesterday that the u.n. security council it condemned north korea's actions. this is a strong first step as we work to increase the pressure on the regime with new sanctions and new steps that we hope to take with regards to our presence in that a
